This is TOO fun:)

Hawksbill Reef
4' x 5' ~ Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

This is going REALLY fast!!! Definitely the most fun I've ever had painting!!!:)


I just started paint this, and I'm liking it already. The reef is probably around 60' so you lose a lot of color and get lots of blues. The edge of the reef is the farthest from you, so it's just different shades of blues. As I paint closer I'll add more color to it. I think I'm gonna have to buy more paint tho!!! This is a GIHUGIC canvas!!!!:)

New Painting ~ Hawksbill Reef

I'm starting a new painting!! This one is 4' x 5' and I just love it. A beautiful reef with a Hawksbill turtle swimming over it. I can't wait to put some paint on this canvas!!! It's huge and should be nothing but fun!!!! I'll post pics as I go, for my "watch me paint" followers!!
